Where: CHS Room 232
When: Thursdays at Lunch
Who: Open to all CHS students
The Envirothon Team is made up of 5 members and CHS can have 2 teams. We like to also have 2 alternates. We meet weekly at lunchtime in Room 232 every Tuesday. On the third week of April, we travel to Lewistown for the state competition. Students are tested on their knowledge in five topic areas: soils and land use; aquatic ecology; forestry; wildlife; and a current environmental issue that changes each year. Through the program, students develop an understanding of effective teamwork, resource management and ecology. At the same time, they gain valuable exposure to a range of disciplines while exploring possible career paths.
